Control and Automation in Citrus Microirrigation Systems

Microirrigation (drip and microsprinklers) is the predominant method for irrigation of citrus in Florida. With chemigation, microirrigation systems can also provide an economical method of applying fertiliser and other agricultural chemicals on a timely basis. However, microirrigation systems require a higher level of management expertise than other irrigation methods. Microirrigation systems are more complex, require greater filtration and water treatment, and typically have high maintenance costs compared to other types of irrigation.
